A subtilisin homologue, Tk-SP, from Thermococcus kodakaraensis is thought to be matured from its inactive precursor Pro-Tk-SP upon autoprocessing of the N-and C-propeptides. In this study, however, we showed that the Pro-Tk-SP derivative with the N-propeptide removed, ProC-Tk-SP, represents a mature form of Pro-Tk-SP in a natural environment. The C-propeptide contributes to the stabilization of ProC-Tk-SP.
